Help! Rust inside fuel tank!

Hello! So I'm new on the forum and I'd like some advice. I just bought a 2003 CBR600RR. I bought it from the original owner. The last time he had plated it was 2009. He let it sit, probably only starting it occasionally. I replaced the oil and oil filter already. I pumped out the old gas, and it was NASTY, having chunks crap floating around. I put in fresh premium gas. It seems to run very well. BUT seeing what was in the old gas made me worry. I just pumped out the most recent gas and even more chunks came out. I'm thinking I'm gonna have to replace the entire fuel tank, fuel pump, and fuel filter. Because it looks like something is rusting..

I attached an image of just a portion of what I found, take a look..

Any advice is very much appreciated!!

Thanks!!

A friend used a local product called tankerite, you will find it googling and if not wrong also a video on YouTube. Pretty sure there is something similar in the usa too.

Look at the inside of my fuel tank!!

I have a 2003 CBR600RR.

I pulled off the fuel tank, and disassembled the fuel pump.
Not good! I'll be ordering a new tank, and fuel pump asap.

Tell me what you think! Can't wait to fix my baby.

You're hurting yourself actually. By spamming the same thing. People have this thing called opinion. You're going to make a bad one of yourself.
